Rode VideoMic NTG Hybrid Analog/USB Camera-Mount Shotgun Microphone

The Rode VideoMic NTG gives video content creators, run-and-gun filmmakers, voiceover artists, and podcasters the sound of the highly regarded NTG shotguns in a convenient camera-mount mic that requires no additional adapters to work with cameras, smartphones, tablets, portable recorders, and USB-equipped computers. With focused directivity, continuously variable gain, digitally switched tone controls, and an internal USB-rechargeable battery, the VideoMic NTG provides transparent sonic performance and immensely flexible functionality. Thanks to its aerospace-grade aluminum housing, the VideoMic NTG is durable, compact, and lightweight, making it equally at home atop a camera or on a boompole. The auto-sensing 3.5mm TRRS output and included TRRS cable ensure compatibility with cameras, portable recorders, mobile devices, and computers—no adapters required. A peak warning light, a -20 dB pad, and the selectable -20 dB safety channel help you easily avoid distortion in your recordings. When used as a USB microphone, the 3.5mm jack functions as a stereo headphone output for real-time monitoring of your signal. Thanks to firmware version 2.0, the VideoMic NTG is now MFi-certified for use with Lightning-equipped Apple iOS mobile devices (iPhone, iPad, and iPod) when paired with the Rode SC15 USB Type-C to Lightning accessory cable (available separately).

The Most Feature-packed VideoMic Ever

The VideoMic NTG is extremely flexible, with an array of features to help you take on any recording situation. Digital switching gives you access to a high-pass filter (flat/75Hz/150Hz), a high-frequency boost for enhancing clarity and detail, a pad (with a -20dB cut), and a safety channel. It also features a unique infinitely variable gain control for precisely tailoring your output to your recording device, an auto-sensing 3.5mm output that accommodates connection to both cameras and mobile devices (no more messing around with adaptor cables), and a handy peak warning light so you can ensure your audio never clips.

Unmatched Versatility

In addition to being a incredible on-camera microphone, the VideoMic NTG is a fully-featured USB microphone that can be plugged into a computer, perfect for recording voice-overs, podcasts, gaming or livestreaming. When in USB mode, the 3.5mm jack doubles as a headphone output for seamless audio monitoring. The VideoMic NTG also pairs perfectly with tablets and smartphones, turning your mobile device into a pro-quality content creation machine.

Revolutionary Acoustic Design

The VideoMic NTG features the same revolutionary line tube technology as the RØDE NTG5, which employs acoustic perforations along the length of the microphone in place of the linear slots found in other shotguns and on-camera microphones. This innovative design delivers unmatched transparency, and a natural, uncoloured sound. Add to this an incredibly flat frequency response, highly directional supercardioid polar pattern, and very low self-noise, and what you have is a compact on-camera microphone that contends with the world’s best shotgun mics.
